Top 9 Ways To Propose At Walt Disney World

For couples that love all things, Disney, visiting Walt Disney World is a chance to share in the magic and make beautiful memories together. If you reach a point where you’d like to propose and spend the rest of your lives making new memories, what better way to share in your love of Disney than proposing in the parks? While your proposal should reflect your own experiences in Walt Disney World, there are some incredibly romantic places to pop the question that would work for any Disney fan. Here are the top nine ways to propose at Walt Disney World.

DisneyLists.com Admin Note: Ryan proposed to his fiancee Lauren in front of Cinderella’s Castle. She said yes so he obviously knows what he’s talking about. You may want to take notes.


9 – Cinderella’s Wishing Well, Magic Kingdom

Situated in an alcove along the pathway between Tomorrowland and Cinderella’s Castle, the Wishing Well is a quiet spot that is close to the castle but secluded enough to feel private. You may have to wait for a few guests to pass by, but tossing coins into the well to make a wish can be a great excuse to ask what your significant other wished for and when they ask in return, dropping to one knee to pop the question.

8 – Tower Of Terror, Hollywood Studios

This one really only works if it’s your partner’s favorite ride, but knowing where and when the photo (and now video) cameras will take your picture can be the perfect time to ask them to marry you. It probably would be a good idea to wait before bringing the ring out until the ride is finished, but their initial reaction to your question can be caught by the cameras and immortalized when you purchase the photo and video.

7 – Character Meet and Greet

Everyone has a favorite Disney character, and there are lots of opportunities to meet and greet your favorites in the parks. Find your significant other’s favorite character and rehearse your proposal as you head up to your meet and greet. Since the PhotoPass Photographer is already there, you’re sure to capture the entirety of your proposal, and the excited look on the character’s face.


6 – Epcot Nighttime Spectacular

If Epcot happens to be your partner’s favorite park, then a proposal during Luminous the Symphony of Us can be a great way to start your life together. Look for a less crowded space in which to pop the question. You can choose to propose right before the fireworks start to enjoy them together or wait until the finale to surprise them just as the sky is filled with light.

5 – Be Our Guest, Magic Kingdom

The Be Our Guest restaurant has some of the most incredible theming of all the restaurants in Walt Disney World. With the lighting slightly dimmed, the mood is already set for you to enjoy a wonderful meal together before (or after) your proposal. Make sure to order champagne to celebrate, and you can even ask the host to seat you in your favorite room if you get an opportunity to ask quietly. Whether you prefer a table by the snow falling outside the windows of the grand ballroom or a table by the enchanted rose in the west wing, you’re sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.


4 – Cinderella’s Royal Table, Magic Kingdom

Cinderella’s Royal Table is perfect if your significant other is a big fan of the princesses. You can buy packages to have your ring brought out in a glass slipper and presented to you before your proposal. While it may seem like you have less involvement in the planning, the glass slipper is a wonderful keepsake to bring home with you and proudly display to remind you of your happy memory. It can be a popular proposal option, so be sure to let them know your plan when you book your reservation.

3 – Carriage Ride

A horse-drawn carriage ride can be perfect for you if you prefer to feel a little less crowded when you plan on popping the question. The carriage rides take place in beautiful settings through both the Cyprus trees of the Fort Wilderness Resort and along the Sassagoula River at Port Orleans – Riverside. Each ride lasts around 25 minutes and takes you through a quiet journey, giving you ample opportunity to share your feelings and propose.

2 – Fireworks, Magic Kingdom

As one of the most iconic moments in any trip to Walt Disney World, the nighttime spectaculars can make for the perfect backdrop to your proposal. You can choose to propose within the first few volleys of fireworks or wait for the pinnacle of the fireworks shows when the sky is full of bright colors. Either way, with only the fireworks to light your evening, you can definitely share a private moment with your significant other as you make a lasting memory.

1 – Cinderella’s Castle, Magic Kingdom

Since it’s the central icon of the Magic Kingdom and Walt Disney World, Cinderella’s Castle is always a romantic setting for your proposal. With the addition of the new courtyards in front of the castle, you have lots of space and opportunity to steal away. Maybe grab a PhotoPass Photographer and pop the question. It’s simple, it’s fun, and you get to share an incredibly magical moment that will give you memories to share forever.

Ryan Miller

Ryan loves all things Disney: from the smallest details to the biggest surprises and all of the magic in between. He loves the fireworks of Wishes, the thrill of Tower of Terror and of course, the dining at Disney Restaurants. As of yet, however, he has been unable to replicate his favourite dishes and snacks at home. In between trips, you can usually find him reading about the history of the parks and attractions when he’s not at work for his local public library in Burlington Ontario. Ryan’s favourite Disney moment was proposing in front of Cinderella’s Castle to his (now) fiancée, Lauren.
